It has 2W stereo speakers for listening to coworkers, an HD webcam so they can see you, a microphone so they can hear you, and a USB hub to cut down on the amount of ports needed on a laptop or desktop to cut out.

The 24-inch, 1080p monitor’s built-in webcam is neatly integrated, with a pop-up design that keeps things tidy when you’re not on a video call. As a bonus, the design doubles as a privacy shutter for the webcam to help prevent accidental (or malicious) presence on the camera. It’s not automatic like many phones. Instead, the webcam is detected “pushing it down into the monitor to spring it up,” Samsung says. The webcam is Windows Hello certified, which means it can scan faces to allow quick logins to apps, websites, and Windows.
